Barnes and Noble listed No Hero as one of the 20 best paranormal fantasy novels of the last decade - now available in mass market paperback!

"What would Kurt Russell do?"

Oxford police detective Arthur Wallace asks himself that question a lot. Because Arthur is no hero. He's a good cop, but prefers that action and heroics remain on the screen, safely performed by professionals.

But then, secretive government agency MI12 comes calling, hoping to recruit Arthur in their struggle against the tentacled horrors from another dimension known as the Progeny.

But Arthur is NO HERO! Can an everyman stand against sanity-ripping cosmic horrors?

Review quote

"Perfect summer read." - SciFi Mafia

"A fun, pulpy adventure novel with a healthy dose of stylized horror. The first in a trilogy, it's a worthy origin story for unlikely hero Arthur Wallace." - Paper Droids

"A fast, well written action urban fantasy filled with healthy lashings of British humour and plenty of madness." -

"Action packed from start to finish." - City of Films

"The adventure is high, the pace frenetic, the characters deep, and the horrors cosmic. Whether your bag is otherwordly horror or police action, you'll be equally satisfied with this read. I, for one, am absolutely sold on this writer, this story, and this series, and I am looking forward with very tight pants for the upcoming sequel." - Project Fandom

"Very rarely do I read a review book straight through, without interruptions. Very rarely do I set aside household chores and ignore my cat to read through a book. This was the case with No Hero. I found myself enjoying the book so much." - Geek Girl Project

"No Hero's pacing is damn near flawless." - Bullet Reviews

"I just read and thoroughly enjoyed Jonathan Wood's No Hero" - Super Punch
